    We aren't talking about the Constitutional political remedy of impeachment here. We are talking about the criminal charge of War Crimes which is a very different matter & can mean death to the convicted.

    Any wonder why Cheney wants that investigation stopped?

    Re: Cheney: Obama Should Be Debriefing, Not Investigating

    the extremely low level of thought expressed here has turned a once interesting thread into a bore fest

    1. cheney wants the investigation, he's the one eager to talk about it, he's the man on tv (fns) scoring points in double digits

    2. libs are mad at obama for limiting his look to only the lowest levels at langley, he lacks the audacity (LOL!) to assail the large men, the leaders, whom the left long to see flailed (you didn't see ej dionne and gwen eiffel this morning on stephanopoulos, you haven't read the post's op ed, it's clear)

    3. and even at that, looking only at the littluns, obama/holder won't lay a lash on a single lackey, even the flashlight will be cleared

    read the new york times:

    CIA prosecutions may face many difficulties

    4. it's losing law but worse politics, the whole effort, that's what carville's getting at, he believes (and he's right) way over 50% of americans don't care about empty threats (LOL!) made against hairy-backed khalid sheikh mohammad, nor for power drills not even plugged in

    "This is terrible politics for the Obama administration and the Democrats," James Carville, a Democratic strategist and CNN political contributor, said Monday in an interview on 'The Situation Room.' "The country – like – really doesn't want this."

    CNN Political Ticker: All politics, all the time Blog Archive - CIA probe is ‘terrible politics’ for Obama, Dem strategist says - Blogs from CNN.com

    5. again, carville speaks for a large chunk of DEMS, probably their mainstream, indeed, and a powerful part of their former leadership

    6. these are holder's headlines?! threats? power drills? 2nd hand smoke? LOLOLOL!

    7. in ECONOMIC TIMES like these, most americans resent so crass a politicization of nat'l security

    8. which is why the white house is not and will not be talking about this investigation, it's a LOSER (like public option, another term fast disappearing from our political lexicon)

    9. americans won't even know the prosecutor's name---LOL!

    10. the only folks talking about this investigation will be CRITICS of the white house, political point scorers, like the valorous VEEP and The powerful Prof

    11. the politics are poisonous for the prez, as is, but if any kinda terror attack occurs, the issue will be obituary of obama

    12. that's why cheney is so eager to talk about this, obama shrinks with every word

    carry on

    tell us more about your personal proclivities, they're compelling

    what's your favorite ice cream?

    LOLOL!

    Do any Cheney appologists ever think that maybe just maybe that Cheney does just two things in his life: 1- try to deflect any acivitythat wouldpoint to his criminal behavior while he ws VEEP; 2- Expell bird shot into his friends faces while he is"hunting"

    What would a liberal response be with out some good ol' fashion personal attacks, that have absolutely nothing to do with the topic of conversation?

    Although comments like those are completely childish, diminish your argument, and bring into question the level of your intelligence, I completely understand why you and so many on the liberal left make them. You have to have an outlet for all the seething hatred within you. Which as we know, is at the core of the far left ideology.

    In other words... You all can't help it.

    Yeah, and you have evidence for that premise?

    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    LOL.... you are already setting the scene for the incompetence of this administration to be blamed on Bush.... you people are incredible.

    Just remember, the rest of the Country will…. No attacks for 8 years, good luck with your spin.

    You know, you bring up some points of how ridiculous partisanship is only to turn around and attack the left and liberals as a whole...Regardless of your political standing, one probably shouldn't be guilty of the same offense in which one is casting blame.
